Sending Smiles :o)

Hello and Happy Friday. ;o)
My whole crew is home today...professional day for the teachers....:o) I love having all my kids home with me.
I made this fabby card for Kimmie's Guest DT call. I worked really hard on it and was having a hard time finishing it!
Anyways, I'm sooooo happy with it! I just love everything about it!
Here are the details:
The image I used is Charlotte and you can get her HERE.
I colored her in with my copics of course. Coloring with red copics can be challenge so I used the technique that I call tip to tip. I added #39 to directly to the tip of my blender pen. That way you have more control over how much red you are adding to your image.
I also added some stickles here and there.
The cupcake is a Kimmie stamps and you can get it HERE.The image is an accessory stamp that comes with Francesca.

The sentiment "sending smiles" is also one of Kimmie's stamps and you can get it HERE
The "U" is an alphabet stamp form Close To My Heart. I stamped it in CTMH Tulip ink
The bling flourishes are Prima....LOVE them so much!
The ribbon is CTMH
I also used a brand new Martha Stewart border punch-Double Loop. :o)
And curvy square /blossom and circle nesties
I used the "out of box" technique for Charlotte's crazy hair....I LOVE how that turned out!
Paper is My Mind's Eye-Oh La La
I also masked off Charlotte and airbrushed the background with my copics.

Thanks for stopping by and have a fabby friday!
